An obvious leftist.
Ryan Chamberlain also has a YouTube account.
he building manager, who did not want to be identified, told KTVU that the building’s laundry room was also sealed off in the wake of the investigation.
The manager said she last saw Chamberlain two weeks ago at a tenant barbeque, where he gave no indication that anything was wrong.
Neighbor Patricia Barlow has an office next to Chamberlain’s apartment and saw him regularly.
“He just didn’t seem the type, but never judge a book by cover,” said Barlow. “He’s very friendly. He’s a nice looking fellow. He’s quiet — you always have to start the conversation with him it’s never vice versa.”
KTVU has learned Chamberlain was involved in sports marketing, taught a semester at University of San Francisco in 2011, and was active in political circles.
“I was shocked. It blew me away,” said Howard Epstein, the past chair of the San Francisco Republican Party.
Epstein said he worked with Chamberlain years ago before Chamberlain switched sides and joined the Democratic Party’s efforts.
“The only one I know that he worked with after he left the party was Gavin Newsom. He was an organizer when Gavin ran for mayor,” said Epstein.
Alex Clemens of Barbary Coast Consulting hired him as a contractor for about a month back in 2009 and has known him through political circles for more than a decade. He described Chamberlain as a competent political operative.
“He worked every cycle on a campaign, or two or three, and you don’t survive in the very high stakes of San Francisco politics without being competent,” said Clemens.
